Thread: Too many processes

    Default Too many processes

    Hello everyone,
    On my old desktop as soon as the pc initialize the system slow down. When I look at the processes I see that there are many 'sh' processes and 'systemd-udevd' being constantly opened, after about 10 minutes more than 10 000 processes running. What it can be?
    Thnx anyway.

    Kernel: 3.11.10-17-desktop x86_64
    Desktop: KDE 4.13.3
    Distro: openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle)

    Intel Pentium 4
    2gb ram (533mhz)
    nvidia 5300

    If possible, could you please copy paste the results of some of these processes and when posting, put the result inside code blocks, like this:

    cool text
    You might also find some hints from /var/log/messages as to what the issue might be.

    You have the wrong NVidia driver installed. That's probably not related
    to your "many processes" issue, but it will make your display slower.

    There might be messages related to udev further up in the log.
